Financial Investigations

Our award-winning team of lawyers is nationally recognised for its excellence and expertise in financial investigations and prosecutions, with much of our work involving a significant international dimension necessitating considerable work in overseas jurisdictions.

We advise individuals and businesses involved in financial investigations undertaken by the police, HMRC, the Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the National Crime Agency, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Competition and Marketing Authority (CMA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

These kinds of investigations can often jeopardise the reputation of businesses as well as individuals. We understand that our clients need to be able to continue their business and personal lives as quickly as possible while controlling the impact on themselves and those around them.  

Our clients are based throughout the UK and often have links to businesses overseas. We have represented clients in high-profile white-collar crime investigations since 1997 and we are ranked in the legal directories in the highest category (band 1) for our work.
